Thats soo sad. "Depressing and a bit dark" is a slight understatement, right?
However, I do think you wrote a really good story!

Damn. This is a unique plot thread for an HP story, and very well done - I am impressed. I have read over a thousand stories in the Harry Potter category (here on FF), and I must say this one caught me, enthralled me, and about killed me. But, as a different reviewer wrote 'if you know your screwed, save the good , take out the bad, go in a blaze of glory'. (paraphrased, but hey, I agree and they said it best :)
As a side note: The overall idea has cropped up in places like the movie "AI" (android child gets bumped aside in the family by a real child), or Star Trek:Next gen episode "Second Chances", where Will Riker gets left behind at a base/and/goes forward to have a great career due to a transporter incident. Even I was tossing an idea around a bit based on a "Tale of Two Cities", where one character poses as another and makes a great sacrifice to save their friend.
I am glad you posted this, thank you. And yes...I did have tears in my eyes. Stories of this caliber are meant to do that...
Thanks, and keep writing

The ending was sad but not entirely unexpected. I must say, I enjoyed this fic. The plotline is more or less original, and you manages to pull it off nicely. Though only 35k, destroy did not feel rushed. Rather, the piece was nice effect. You had the right amount of plot twists and cannon that felt as if I was experiencing another of Jo Rowling's writing. You are an exceptional writer.

I've been re-reading this, and I'm still in love with this story, and most especially this ending.
'The Triwizard Tournament trophy flew straight towards his waiting arms. Reaching for it, he smiled - victorious at last.
The explosion levelled most of the maze and lit up the sky over Hogwarts, bringing a bright false dawn to herald the passing of the thing once called Harry Potter, the boy-who-lived.
Eternal glory indeed.'
That is possibly the greatest thing ever. You're an amazing writer!
